1934 Austin 7 Type 65Reg: OC7134Chassis No: 187871Engine No. M248673 Discovered in the 1970s, OC 7134 was in poor but generally complete condition, and owned by a well-known Austin 7 enthusiast in Hampshire. He sold this type 65 in unrestored condition in the 1980s; restoration followed, retaining as many of the original Nippy parts as possible. When restored the main chassis members were replaced and bolted to the original cross members. A new floor was fitted, with the original number bolted to the floor. The front wings are original as is the bonnet, scuttle and rear end. The doors were re-skimmed as was the boot cover and the rear wings were made new. The engine at this time was a standard unit, but when the car was sold back to the Hampshire enthusiast a rare correct type original pressure fed engine was sourced and fitted about eight years ago. At the time the engine was checked and found not to require a rebuild, just a service. Before the current owner died, OC 7134 was much used and enjoyed; it requires a new custodian and is offered with a file of history that includes correspondence and photographs, old V5s, a green continuation logbook and a current V5C. A rare opportunity to acquire an original type 65 with an original pressure fed engine.To be auctioned along with a fantastic selection of other vehicles on July 1st at our Showell Farm site, SN15 2NU with viewing on the 29th and 30th of June, you can also join us at our Nostalgia Social cars & coffee event on June 25th.
